Digital Migration Regulations

Posted by LA Thornton on Wednesday, March 3, 2010
On 15 Feb 2010, ICASA published final Digital Migration Regulations following an aborted attempt to finalise the regulations in July 2009.  ICASA considered the Broadcasting Digital Migration Policy published by the Minister in Sept 2008, although it did not follow it completely.

The publication of the Digital Migration Regulations was accompanied by a Reasons Document on Digital Migration, detailing the process and ICASA‚Äôs reasoning. 

Back in 2008 when the Minister published the Digital Migration Policy, it was expected that the process would be 100 percent complete by 2011.  The Digital Migration Regulations set roll-out targets of 50 percent coverage by 2011, 80 percent by 2012 and 90 percent by 2013, pushing the date for full implementation back indefinitely.
